HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I may have said this before but I'll say it again. April and May get really busy around here.

Today is the day we commemorate the birth of a beautiful woman. I refer to her as SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed). Her eldest daughter refers to her as The M (The Mother). She answers to Judy. Or Judith, her given name. Around the house I call her Honey or Dearie. I used to call her JG, which are her given initials for Judith Gayle. But I used to joke that they stood for Judy Girl.

All in all, through thick and thin, as the saying goes, she's been by my side for . . . a few years. More than I can believe some times.

My dad really liked her.

And so do I.

Happy Birthday to my wife.

She's a good one.  I think I'll keep her.

  2. She is indeed a great woman. Beautiful, elegant, talented and especially sainted for her years of enduring your brand of gusto and madness! As we have said before, you guys are our inspiration.

  4. Happy Birthday, Judy. Bruce, you often mention BRD as the older daughter, but nary a word about the youngest. My apologies if it is a forbidden subject.
